    The impossible search

    I'm looking for a replacement for my B&B branded brush. I have found no way to search for "Badger & Blade brush" that doesn't return a bunch of unrelated threads. West Coast Shaving doesn't seem to carry it. Does it no longer exist? The one I have is my daily driver, but I've dropped it more...

    DIYers - Has anyone ever successfully duplicated Williams Shaving Sticks?

    I shaved this morning with my favorite vintage soap: Williams Shaving Stick. It's pink in color and rose scented. Smells seriously terrific. I only use it a couple of times a year, since I'll likely never find another one. Which leads me to the title of the thread. Does anyone have a...

    User grade Flare Tip Superspeed

    The FTSS is my daily driver. My 15-year-old son is just starting to shave. I started him off with a Schick Krona but think that the super reliable Superspeed might be a better choice. I'm not particular about the quality of the Ni plating. Just as long as the TTO works, it'll be all good...

    Esterbrook is back

    There's a nice article up on usatoday about the revival of the Esterbrook brand. Does anyone here know if these new Esties are any good?

    The Big(gest? LOSER

    I just realized that I can't remember my last DE shave. Maybe once in October? Between the Junior Bar and the 1912s, I just see no reason to break out any of the DEs.

    Grungiest! Razor! Evah!

    Anyone willing to gamble $10 on something that vaguely resembles a single ring? http://www.ebay.com/itm/Old-Safety-Razor-/190929380337

    Knot suggestion needed

    Folks, I've a really pretty ER butterscotch handle and stand that I picked up on the B/S/T a while back. It's ready for a knot, but I don't have a clue about the correct shape. Would a bulb fit inside the holder? Or is there another shape that I should be looking for? Thanks for any...

    Fatboy Slim?

    Old news to many probably, but I couldn't resist passing this along. Do we have an official B&B rapper?

    WARNING: Traditional shaving will make you gray

    Yes, it's true. I had a goatee up until I started down the traditional path two years ago. Nice and black. I've been clean-shaven (except for Movember) since then until last week, when I decided to grow the goatee back. Now it's mostly gray! I have to conclude that it was all because of the...

    A Modest Proposal/Rant

    Why would aftershave manufacturers (I'm looking at you, AV) put their wares in a 3.5 oz bottle? The TSA in the US won't let you carry on anything larger than 3.4 oz. I'd love to be able to throw a bottle of AV Sport in my travel bag but can't for fear of having it seized. It seems to me that...

    Can you be "sort of Chosen?

    Tried the Veg for the first time this week. Meh. I don't hate it. I don't get any kind of cat pee or other weird smell. It's just not for me. Am I a Veg zombie? Neither Chosen nor Unchosen? :blink: SWMBO, BTW, is definitely Unchosen.

    That's all I can stands. I can't stands no more!

    I've been in a hotel since Sunday night. I flew in and didn't check a bag, so I've been using a cart all week (though I did have a Merkur 33C and a GEM 1912 packed-- just no blades). I was really looking forward to a nice shave tomorrow after I got home. SE or DE, didn't really matter. And...

    It's a floor wax AND a dessert topping

    Or, maybe it's a stapler that looks like a fountain pen. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-DUO-FAST-POCKET-STAPLER-FOUNTAIN-PEN-/310656823835

    O Type!

    Just snagged an NOS O type injector with 42 Chick blades for a pretty good price. http://www.ebay.com/itm/261201986591?ssPageName=STRK:MEWNX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1439.l2649 I've been wanting an O type just for the coolness factor, but an NOS razor presents a dilemma. To use or not to use, that...

    SE blade question

    I've searched the reviews and Googled it (site: badgerandblade.com) and haven't found any reference to ASR's American Line Extra Keen blades. Like these: http://www.razorbladeco.com/products/127-american-line-extra-keen-single-blade.aspx or these...

    TSA: In case you were wondering.

    They're still not allowed.

    I don't get this

    An uncased Type O for $177!? And how does an eBay user have over 100,000 "wins?"
